The Fame Monster track listing

"So Happy I Could Die" is a song from The Fame Monster, written by Lady Gaga, Space Cowboy, and RedOne. The song was written in July, 2009.
The song was featured in "The MOCA Speechless Performance".

Meaning

"So Happy I Could Die" represents her "Fear of Addiction Monster", this also includes a fear of alcohol. In an interview, she stated that the song is about our "happy place" that we go to when we're under "the influence", and this fear is split between two songs. Aside from the prevalent of alcoholism, "So Happy I Could Die" also explores several sexual themes in its lyrics. The song also makes a reference to her lavender wig.

On July 26, 2009 Lady Gaga tweeted "Lavender wig is back in full force. I'm so happy I could die."

Musically, it is a synthpop song that draws elements of Europop. Critics were divided with "So Happy I Could Die", who dispite complimenting its sexual nature, a lesbian love interest, and acceptance of closeted sexuality and bi-curious undertones, were critical of Gaga's monotonous vocals. Dispite mixed review, the song managed to chart in Hungary, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Performances for the song transpired during The Monster Ball Tour.

Performances

Lady Gaga performed the song on certain dates for the first North American leg of The Monster Ball Tour. She then later performed it on the revamped version. During the first leg, she performed the song before "Teeth", wearing a black leather corset. On the revamped version, she wears the Living Dress. The song is performed after the Twister Interlude. Because she has a bigger stage for the revamped version of the tour, she performs the song on runways that extend to the middle of the audience. After singing the first chorus, she gets lifted up in the air so she can see her audience more. Towards the end of the song, she is lowered down to the stage to change into her next costume for her next song.

Lyrics

Eh-eh, eh-eh
Ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh
Aha-aha

Eh-eh, eh-eh
Ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh
Aha-aha

I love that lavender blonde
The way she moves
The way she walks
I touch myself can’t get enough
And in the silence of the night
Through all the tears
And all the lies
I touch myself and it’s alright

Just give in
Don’t give up baby
Open up your heart and your mind to me

Just know when that glass is empty
That the world is gonna bend

Happy in the club with a bottle of red wine
Stars in our eyes ‘cuz we’re having a good time

Eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
Be your best friend
Yeah, I’ll love you forever
Up in the clouds, we’ll be higher than ever

Eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
And it’s alright

Eh-eh, eh-eh
Ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh
Aha-aha

Eh-eh, eh-eh
Ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh
Aha-aha

I am as vain as I allow
I do my hair
I gloss my eyes
I touch myself all through the night
And when something fall out of place
I take my time
I put it back
I touch myself
'till I’m on track

Just give in
Don’t give up baby
Open up your heart and your mind to me

Just know when that glass is empty
That the world is gonna bend

Happy in the club with a bottle of red wine
Stars in our eyes ‘cuz we’re having a good time

Eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
Be your best friend
Yeah I’ll love you forever
Up in the clouds
We’ll be higher than ever

Eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
And it’s alright

So happy I could die
And it’s alright

So happy I could die
And it’s alright

Eh-eh, eh-eh
Ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh
Aha-aha

Eh-eh, eh-eh
Ye-ha, ye-ha
Eh-eh, eh-eh
Aha-aha

Happy in the club with a bottle of red wine
Stars in our eyes ‘cuz we’re having a good time

Eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die
Be your best friend
Yeah I’ll love you forever
Up in the clouds, we’ll be higher than ever

Eh-eh, eh-eh
So happy I could die and it’s alright
